10 Alpine Drive $389,000

Friday’s post showed the view down the Hole 5 fairway. In the distance, you can see a house (shown closer in the photo below). The custom built home, located at 10 Alpine Drive, is as close to the front gate as you can get, but somehow still seems private. I’ve heard that the view from the house, looking back up the fairway, is amazing. The house, situated on 2.5 lots, is off to the right behind the green with a creek separating the home from the golf course. The asking price is $389,000.

Coachwhip Trail

April 27, 2014 – wild azalea in bloom on Coachwhip Trail

Last Sunday’s post had information about a house for sale on Coachwhip Court in Bent Tree. Coachwhip Court branches off of Coachwhip Trail, which runs between Grandview Trail and South View Trail. There are currently no houses at all on Coachwhip Trail. There’s an improved waterline and nice fire hydrants, but no houses (and no power lines except for a short section off of Grandview Trail). The heavily wooded area is very pretty, and there are buildable lots. The photo above, of wild azaleas, was taken along Coachwhip Trail last spring. Click the video below (taken last week) for a golfcart ride from one end of the street to the other. The video is pixelated and bumpy, especially at the start. It’s not that easy to record using a phone while on a golfcart. It smooths out some after about 20 seconds. I might have tried to record a smoother version, but then you’d miss the deer I came upon at about the 53 second mark. Watch closely.

Slurping Algae Like Spaghetti

While watching the goldfinches in the spillway the other day (see yesterday’s post), I realized they weren’t there to drink the water. A closer look showed that all three birds were eating long strands of algae, slurping them up like spaghetti noodles. And, they were eating a lot.

August 31, 2014 - two males & one female goldfinch in spillway

Well…goldfinch. On Sunday morning, a male goldfinch landed in the spillway. A few minutes later, another male flew in. A few minutes after that, a female appeared.
